How is feed in and usage calculated by a digital electricity meter?

To ask this question as clearly as possible, I do it by example: Three phase connection (Nos. 1, 2 and 3), loads at the same point of time: Phase 1: Usage of 10kW. Phase 2: Feed in of 25kW. Phase 3: Feed in of 2kW. How will this be read by a digital meter from AGL? By this i mean: If these are the stable loads for one hour, how many kWh will we be shown on the meter for usage and how many for feed in for that period?

Re: How is feed in and usage calculated by a digital electricity meter?

Schander, many thanks for the extensive reply to my original post. It may sound funny, but I am not sure either if your explanation does answer my question.From the research that I did about three phase inverters it is clear that up to this date there is no inverter on the market that can shift the power fed-in from solar flexibly to each of the three phases out. So if there is, at one point of time, a production from the panels of say 3 kW, each phase of any three phase inverter on the market t ...

Re: How is feed in and usage calculated by a digital electricity meter?

Hi Schander, many thanks again for the effort you have taken. I think my question is answered by your last reply. Just to clarify, both examples I gave were theoretical in preparation for getting a solar system for my property. This system would not work out financially when the count for billing purposes was as I summed it up in my reply of this morning under a). But it will pay off when it is counted as I summed it up under b). As my solar system is going to be quite large and the investment t ...
